Going Nuts for LA’s Best Donuts
You want one.
We did it on purpose. (#SorryNotSorry)
So the big question becomes: What kind?
Maybe it’s the classics: a French cruller, a maple bar, or a jelly-filled donut covered in powdered sugar. Or maybe you’d like to get weird and go for the ones with bacon on top. Or maybe you’re a “go big or go home” type, and this means ordering a dozen donut holes so you can try all the flavors. We can get behind that.
But that brings us to our next question: Where will you postmate your next donut from?
With so many good donut shops scattered throughout LA, picking just one isn’t easy. That’s where Postmates comes into play: On-demand delivery means you can sample a donut (or 2 or 10) a day from any shop in the city. Have donuts delivered to you at home, at the office, to the birthday bash or to the going away party — it’s wherever you choose, and whenever you want.
So without further ado, here’s some order inspiration, because honestly — who doesn’t go a little nuts for LA’s best donuts?
Birdies knows good fried chicken. And for them, knowing how to fry the perfect drumstick must go hand-in-hand with making some quality donuts. You can find all the staples (and the fried chicken) on the menu, but the real je ne sais quoi lies in their signature offerings. The horchata twist, pistachio lemon thyme, and cookies ‘n cream flavors are like nothing you’ve ever had before… until now.
DK’s has 31 different types of donuts, and that’s just on their standard menu. They’ve also got 33 varieties of specialty donuts, ranging from classic apple fritters to Girl Scout cookie-inspired concoctions. If cronuts are more your jam, get in on some “Onuts” action — your choice of filling between two decadent croissant/donut hybrids.
Kettle Glazed Doughnuts has a flavor to make any New England-to-LA transplants feel like they’re back east with bad weather: the fluffernutter. Inspired by the unofficial sandwich of Massachusetts, this combination of peanut butter and marshmallow makes for a rare treat in LA.
Donuts = breakfast, if you want them to, and it’s obvious that the bakers at California Donuts are all about that philosophy. They’re serving up donuts smothered in your favorite cereals — Fruit Loops, Lucky Charms, or Blueberry Toast Crunch, anyone? They even take it a step further with whimsical creations like their Instagram-worthy panda donuts with Oreo cookies for ears.
Ralph and Celia Primo bought this unassuming shop on Sawtelle Boulevard in 1956 with the intention of flipping the business after a year. Instead, they’ve been serving up classic donuts for over 60. Pro tip? Place your Postmates order as early as possible to avoid sellouts. Then get a fresh taste of the American Dream the second you bite into one of their famous buttermilk bars, bacon bars, and beyond.
